The latest touchscreen smartwatches have a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC processor running Google’s Wear OS, and are compatible with both Apple Iphone and Android phones.
There are new dial designs, stainless steel cases, and a 1·19 in AMOLED display with an ambient sensor.
Functions include heart-rate tracking, Alipay (in China) or Google Pay (in selected countries), GPS distance-tracking, and Mobvoi Assistant (China) or Google Assistant (in selected countries). The watches can handle depths of 3 ATM (30 m).
